Watch how to use a spline miter jig on the table saw. Two simple and easy to make table saw spline miter jigs are demonstrated in this woodworking video presentation. Watch how the woodworker cuts accurate spline slots into the miter joints of picture frames.
The two splined miter jigs are of differing sizes because the picture frames very in size. Notice how easy it is to cut the slots for the splines. Simply secure the picture frames to the jigs by using spring clamps. Adjust the height of the dado blade and take your time as you push the jig along the table saw fence and through the dado blade.
The picture frames in this video are cherry and have decorative wood inlay bandings. The splines are of walnut to give a nice accent to the woodworking project.
Note: If a table saw blade is chosen to cut the slot for the spline miter joint, it is best to choose a flat toothed blade. The reason for this is so that the spline will seat nicely into the slot without any gaps.
